to touch someone quickly. this also is necessary in the western pacific where china, for example, has 80 sub marines just to our 50. even john mccain who was quite critical in the hearing said this nomination should go through. >> right. >> well, yeah. on that point, it looks like the nomination will be confirmed. the problem is it loonlgs like there's a filibuster or attempt at a filibuster and that means democrats and the white house have to come up with 60 votes to get this through. mccain has indicated to break a filibuster. looks like they would have the votes to do that. do you think we have sort of crossed a line here, bad precedent set for future cabinet nominations? never before has there been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. only two rejected since 1959. nobody tried to filibuster one in that time. are we creating bad precedent? >> why the senate has the right as a senator said who is supporting senator hagel to do a filibuster. i think it would set a bad precedent because as many people often very conservative have said in this particular case, the president has th

back to here but talking about the animal trade, it is really a cultural thing. china's one of the main consumers of these products and what happens is like i went to cambodia, laos, thailand, all these places. these people are raised culturally to eat some of the products and maybe bear or bear bile or a tiger and because they think it makes them more of a man and more of a smaller care and maybe on special occasions and so on and is forth but with a growing population in china, a main cause of the problems and more and more of this culture that thinks that you need this, there's more of a demand so it goes back to the poor peasant, the poor farmer and person that doesn't have the ability to survive. they're hunters and gatherers still in the environments and a guy comes in town and goes, i can make you a fast buck if you get me this little animal. they go, oh, we have them everywhere. they grab them, they collect them, they hand them to the next guy. they have their money and they keep going. what they don't realize is the degradation to the environment and to the whole system of the

the greatest success story in the history of the world in terms of pulling people out of poverty it's china. china in the last generation, hundreds of millions of people in the middle class and the foreign aid community has to look at that and ask themselves what they could be doing differently and i think it can work but these giant programs often are not what works and certainly when you start displacing local entrepreneurs and telling local people, we can do this for you better than you can do it for yourself, you set up a culture of dependency and then you snuff out people who are coming up with local solutions to local problems and not really what "the night ranger" is about and it's a thriller but there is that world view, my view of this informs this and i'm not afraid to say that. >> it's my experience in meeting with refugees that foreign aid, a small percentage of donations of foreign aid actually get to the people that need it. i've seen that a lot sold on the black market. >> yes. >> a lot gets redirected to corrupt governments and even if the intentions are good and the ngo del

, china comes to mind with an exploding market for oil. and we're sort of at the mercy of the rest of the world really. >> no, that is true, and but that's an unfortunate truth. looking at domestic gasoline or should be getting far, far better prices than what we are getting right now because our crude oil, in fact, is cheaper by about $25 than everywhere else around the globe and that should indicate we get a cheaper price for gasoline, too. we don't. because we have a lot of financial connections. i don't want do get, again, too deep in the weeds but the financial connections connect the price of gasoline to global crude oil prices instead of to domestic crude oil prices. if they were connected to domestic crude oil prices you would see prices about a dollar lower than right now so these are some of the problems when you get a big financial market that sets prices for people and what they pay at the pump. >> well, dan, another thing that the president has focused on is trying to reduce the overall usage of gasoline and he's focused on fuel efficiency standards to do that. meanwhi
